3.4 out of 5
I love this one!
This is literally one of my favorites! It smells like royalty
I was surprised as when i first smelled it. I expected a different smell but I enjoy it. It is a little strong but good
Special occasion perfume
Smells wonderful and exactly like the description. Floral but smoky.
Great citrusy scent
Smells great on summer days, but it doesnt last very long so you tend to use alot of it
I have not been able to to find it in years. Love this scent...
Love it... So happy to find it again... Thank you...
Lovely!!! Romantic... just as the notes described!!! If you can't go to Italy... bring it's scent to you!!!
I really like the scent, it's very fresh and fun, but it doesn't last as long as I thought it should
Great Top Notes
When I first opened & sprayed this scent, I was thrilled. It was just what I was hoping for. Very fresh & clean. But then a few minutes later I started to get a headache and nausea. I'm probably allergic to one of the ingredients in one of the other notes. Probably a good scent if you're not so sensitive and don't have allergies.
I think I got an old batch
It smells like a perfume that's aged. It wants to be what it was, but it's old and turning and a huge disappointment because it would have been amazing and fresh in it's new state. Great citrus smell. Stinks because it's seen better days. Why would Scentbird send a perfume that is turning?
Smells like grapefruit
My dog turns his nose up to it and backs up. Doesn't last more than 5 minutes. I can't even leave the house before the scent is gone.
Love it - I have it in my purse...
The best decision ever to purchase this item - I love it.
Did not like
Had a bit of a musky smell. It was a bit overwhelming.
I linked the notes it reminded me of my younger days
Was thinking a little more gardenia.
Friends really liked the scent.
didn't really like this
Fruity, clean but not a favorite.
Eau De Hadrien
I used to sell Annick Goutal fragrances when I worked for Neiman Marcus in the mid 90's---I loved EDH and used to wear it a lot but it seemed to have a lot more staying power back then--now it's lovely for 5 minutes and then gone.
Fun Spring/Summer scent
Citrusy and deep. Not cleaner citrus but a nice mix of floral and citrus. Would honestly prefer this scent in a home diffuser. Very sophisticated, something your rich aunt would wear. But this is not for me, I'm more into playful scents.
Citrus and Cypress
A very nice fresh citrus-woody scent.
Love this scent
I first heard of this perfume in an ad in a magazine. The fragrance description was so great that I had to have it.
Nice spring/summer fragrance.
Not my jam. Leans towards bug spray on my skin
This smell is not good. It's musky for sure and that musk is so strong. Not the scent for me.
Just not that into it
Just jot a scent I would wear but I’m sure others would love it
Smells like I was wearing pine trees
A person smells like orange citrus and then it started to smell like pine trees and I live out in the woods so I don't want to smell where I live
I absolutely LOVE this scent!!!
55 to 64
For lover of soft citrus
I first fell in love with this scent when a friend wore it. As soon as she told me the name of it, I ordered it here!
I should know by now that if I can't pronounce it, I'm not going to like it.
A little more “pine-y” than I was expecting, but overall a very nice, citrus perfume!!
Elegant and light. Great all day long.
Agree with the previous reviewers that it smells more like home fragrance, the lemony scent is too offensive even though you can smell the sophisticated base note. The home fragrance market probably got inspired by this smell too and started creating a whole series of products. Now I don’t want this on my body.
25 to 34
The grapefruit smells like pepper with my body chemistry. This might smell great on someone that produces a natural musk smell.
It’s ok smells old
Love it citrusy and long lasting.. Love this!!
I love the smell
It does have a citrusy smell. Very refreshing. A little bit goes a long way
LOVE THIS CLASSIC
Haven't owned this in about 20 years, so it was good to smell it again and get in the mood for spring.
love it ust perfect
Smells like poison
Smells really bad
reminds me of my lemon tree (in a good way)
This smells so much like lemons and citrus, but in a really earthy, natural way. It's very light and you can wear it to the office and is nice in the heat. It reminds me a lot of being in a lemon grove or when the lemon trees are blossoming.
didn't like the smell
This wasn't for me. I love a good lemon scent (D&G Light Blue). But this was sharp smelling (maybe the Cypress) and smelled like it had gone bad on me.
Not what i expected dispenser you cant call it a bottle of perfume did not dispense tertible product the little amount i managed to get was not good
Tertible packaging not a perfume bottle at all was in a dispenser type tube which didnt work cheap nasty thing what lityle droo i managed to get out was not the type of smell i expect
Dont like this one
I love perfume, but this ine not-so-much. I will give it away.
It was an interesting risk, it seemed more like an air freshener or car freshener than something to wear on my body.
Didn't like it
Not too heavy.
It smelled like Lemon Joy on my skin.
Woodsy and citrus
Not the good kind of "polished"
As other reviewers have pointed out, there's a definite "furniture polish" kick to this perfume. It quickly fades to the background, though, with a drydown that's just.. okay. The notes are beautiful when considered individually, with high quality that is easily recognized. This is one scent that just never "bloomed" on me. Longevity- Poor. Sillage- Mild.
65 or over
Did not like this.
This fragrance was way too fruity. The lemon scent was overpowering.
25 to 34
Extreme citrus with a whiff of ylang
I picked this perfume for something refreshing to wear during the summer, and it is a citrus bomb! The ylang ylang gives it a hint of sweet and musky floral, which I think is what is making people dislike the smell. If you don't like ylang ylang, that's fine but it's such a disservice to this great fragrance to rate it low for smelling how it says it will.
It is a classy citrus perfume.
45 to 54
Fresh and citrusy
Citrusy and clean with fresh green notes. A good summer everyday scent.
This is a light yet solid scent. I love it! It fits me!
35 to 44
I love this!
I love anything citrus smelling, and this was wonderful. Anyone who smells it on me loves it, glad I stumbled on it.
45 to 54
Fresh and bright
Very citrusy with a hint of something more. Very clean and elegant. I really love this.
25 to 34
Okay, I get what they were going for in the synopsis about Tuscan citrus groves and sun-drenched cypress trees and all that. I don't disagree. But, to me, this perfume smelled more like a home fragrance than a person fragrance. To be clear, I thought it smelled nice! I just don't think it's something I would wear. My husband is currently using it, but I think that's more out of convenience than anything. If you like ylang ylang, I'm almost certain you'd like this scent. The ylang ylang and cypress were the top-most notes to me, but because my husband is wearing it, the citrus must be obvious to him since that's all he will wear. It's a complex fragrance, I think. Definitely for a certain type of person, IMO. No harm in trying it if you like ylang ylang!
35 to 44
Not a fan..
This was not a great choice for me, I don’t know how to describe this fragrance other than not for me.. I’m sad because I cut my subscription back to every 3 months so now I have to wait to get something I do like ..
45 to 54
Not for me
This is not a good choice for me. I’m a bit eclectic in my selections so I am versatile...but this one...not in my top 100...and I only like about 20 fragrances.
25 to 34
I love this scent. It’s so fresh and citrusy, perfect for summer.
45 to 54
Definitely an acquired scent!
I wanted to love this so perfume so much and kept trying it and trying it and first of all, the scent went away quickly on me and also the scent is nothing I would have bought had I smelled it in a department store.
Light bright citrus scent that will make you yearn for summer!
I can clearly smell the cypress and lemon scent...and then it calms down...It lasts for about 5 hours...It doesn't shout out at people but it leaves a light happy scent...It isn't sweet...It's refreshing and makes me think of warm skin in the summer sun and drinking a cool summer drink...I would buy a bottle of this...A new favorite!!! I defy someone to wear this and NOT feel like summer and carefree days are just around the corner.
35 to 44
Like mimosas in Rome on a summer day
This is a great day-time, everyday, clean scent. It reminds me of sipping a crisp bubbly beverage on a sun-soaked summer day in Rome. The bubbly orange citrus of a mimosa tickling your nose as a gentle breeze of cool cypress bursts past. If you put on too much it's a bit more to the effect of mixing pine-sol and lemon pledge on spring cleaning day - but hey, I still like that smell too.
45 to 54
Love citrusy scents so it right up my alley. It does go on strong but settles out to a soft cypress and citrus tone. I would wear it for spring summer and going into fall
It was pretty overbearing at first but it did grow on me throughout the day. Only need one spray max!
Bright and crisp
This is a very citrusy scent, but not sweet at all. To my nose, the notes smell like lime, pomelo, and fresh greens. This scent is for the die hard citrus fans out there, and if that is not you, you might not like it. Many perfumes tend to smell too heavy and sweet on my skin, so I like this perfume. I feel like it could use something else to help balance out the astringent quality of the scent, so I like to layer it with other perfumes that have sweeter mandarin orange sort of notes.
It has a very strong scent in the Cypress not my favorite
Fresh sweet Citrus
This is my favorite scent that I have received so far... at first it's a little overwhelming like a citrus cleaner but once it settles it's a light clean sweet citrus scent... it lasts through my entire work day also. I will be ordering a full bottle!!!
Not a fan
I usually like the unique scents Annick Goutal has but oof. This one. I'm trying to think of how best to describe it. Umm. Eau de urinal cake mixed with orange cleaner? I mean, I like citrus but... Blech. The best I can say is the scent does die down so you don't smell like you've been rolling around on the floor of the local gas station bathroom for very long.
Instantly reminded me of the smell of black licorice which I myself am not fond of after it sat for a while it wasn't as harsh but I'm still personally not a fan
Black licorice was my first thought as well
I did not like this fragrance at all, it has a strong smell of lemon and ginger it looked like it was smelling like a medicine for the flu.
good not great
enjoyed the scent. love the wonderful variety of notes in this scent. however, it did not have staying power. was gone before the end of the day'
Thankfully it was free
So this was my November perfume. I had a friend subscribe so this ended up being my free month. I'm so glad it did because I ended up not liking this. It has such a strong citrus smell and it's pretty overbearing. This is definitely the first one out of all that I've received since Jan that I do not like. It smells ok after it tones down but I don't know if I will be wearing this one anymore.
Old lady !!!!!
This stuff smells terrible old lady and way to powerful of a smell made me sick
Smells like oranges
Unless you want to walk around smelling like you just ate a bunch of lemons and oranges this ones a no. I should’ve read more into the reviews I feel like I wasted a months perfume on this and I’m not gonna use it.
Delicate and pretty
This is very nice! A light, delicate fragrance. Smells very much like lemon dish soap at first, but once dry it smells so soft and fresh. A scent for a classy woman.
Hooked for sure
Overpowering. Did not like it at all.
Way too lemony
I love citrusy scents, but at first this is so overpoweringly lemony it's unpleasant, and as another reviewer noted, smells like lemon pledge. After it dries down, it's not bad, but nothing special. doesn't last long
Unique and Bright
This is such an intriguing scent with lemon and a woody green taking up most of the space. There is zero hint of floral i. This perfume which I really like. It is bright, fresh, and so unique. Like nothing I’ve ever smelled before
Citrus with a note of floral
I really love this scent, there are all the right citrus notes without the added sugar and the ylang ylang gives it just a touch of floral that smells more herbal and clean than most floral scents. Highly recommend if you want something feminine that is not overtly sweet.
Love this scent
I love the citrusy notes as well as the hints of green, almost grassy bits underneath. I have been looking for something that is bright but not overly floral. This is it!!!
It was ok....very very fruity
This reminded me of lemon and orange cleaner
Nicel clean sent.
This scent is very crisp and clean. Stays for most of the day. I definitely want to buy full size.
A little overpowering
I was looking for a bright citrus for the summer, but the ylang-ylang and cypress really drag down the citrus and make it kind of sultry and perfumy and a little overpowering. Not terrible if it's your thing, it's not grandma-y or anything, but not the clean bright scent I was hoping for
Smells like cleaning fluid
This is very citrusy. Put orange juice, lemon juice and grapefruit juice together and you have this perfume.
Smells like lemon pledge
Very masculine and spicy on me. Smells like fake lemon pledge and doesn’t last more than an hour or two. Hard pass and I’m obsessed with anything lemon scented
This was a very nice surprise...fresh orangey lemony top notes very juicy. Hint of greens and light floral underneath. So sweet and summery...what i loved most is it doesnt change all that much on the dry down except to get ever so slightly peppery but in no way overwhelming !!! A real home run!!!
Too overwhelming, too strong!
lots of compliments
I am really enjoying this fragrance. Every time i wear it, I get lots of compliments. It's a clean but soft citrus scent that's good for the office, errands and casual events. At a recent outdoor gathering I got lots of second and third hugs with a murmured "you smell so good."
Great summertime scent
Love this for a summertime scent, so fresh. I find it fairly long lasting, which I like.
This smell like lemon pledge. I don’t not like it at all.
Nice light floral with a soft hint of light citrus. Sophisticated, classic. Day or night. Not overwhelming.
In the bottle, this scent is extremely strong, but doesn’t last long once applied to skin or clothing. I would consider this a more masculine scent. The lemon is strong and is just a bit much for me, but if you like clean scents—this one is for you.
Lemon Head Candy 🍋
It’s a fun summertime perfume, it’s clean and fresh. It’s extremly lemony- almost a tangy/sour scent. I would never buy it, but it was fun to try out!
A bit too "tangy" found too strong for me.
Sophisticated & Clean
I get a lot of cypress in the initial spray which is a bit masculine but intriguing, and there's fresh lemony citrus top notes of course. The dry down is very soft and light- good for work environment or casual weekend get togethers. It just doesn't last very long, so expect to respray at least 2x in a day.
Fruity and fun
Nice Sweet Smell
Nice smell that reminds me of Armani Code
ANNICK GOUTAL EAU D’HADRIEN
Way to floral-y for my taste.
Not so good, doesn't last very long
Wasn't impressed at all. The scent didn't last .
I didn't like this scent. It didn't last long and it just didn't do it for me.
Fresh, green & gorgeous
Really beautiful scent, just not for me. Initially smells almost like a mojito tastes, refreshing and minty. Then there is a green floral undertone that is gorgeous & captivating. If your prefer the lighter, airy floral scents, it would be perfect. Not my style.
I didn't like how much it was sweet and sour at the same time. it tingled my nose in not a good way
I like the scent, but it's strong and doesn't last.
I like this scent quite a bit, however it starts out very strong and then fades to almost nothing five minutes after I've sprayed it. I like how strong the lemon is in it and I can smell the mandarin and the grapefruit. I like the perfume and will wear it until it runs out, but I don't like it enough to buy a full size bottle.
This smells lemony(?), but faintly reminds me of the smells from the public bathroom and its soap.
Love this scent
The citrus stands out and a little lasts a long time. really love it.
I found my scent
Love this scent !!! I have been searching for a new scent to replace my Tommy Jeans they no longer make. This scent starts with the lemon, moves into a grapefruit citress, then ends with a beautiful soft flower note that lasts for hours. This is on my list for the full size bottle. I have a weird body chemistry with a great many perfumes and hate the thought of spending alot for one i can't wear. Thanks to Scentbird i can affordably try scents out before investing in one. i am so excited, can't wait to experience my next choice! Thank you Scentbird, and participating perfumes for this platform so we all have the opportunity to find scents that work for us without breaking the bank.
I wanted to love this. I really did. The notes seemed promising. Perhaps its just my personal chemistry but this smells like bug spray when I wear it. Somewhere in between OFF and a citronella candle. It's very strong and not at all flattering.
Reminded me of soap very fresh. A lot of citrus tones in it.
Very sophisticated and fresh...
Its not my favorite. Doesn't stay on long.
brushed on citrus
initially i liked the scent, but as a few minutes passed i realized that it was not as light and fresh as i had hoped but cheap and heavy smelling
I really love the scent of citrus so I thought this would be the scent for me. The citrus scent is strong at the beginning but fades into a pleasant but very faint scent within an hour. This scent does not last at all so I can not tell if I like it beyond the strong citrus smell
I like the scent of citrus but this has a strange scent also that I can’t put my finger on. I really tried but Just don’t like it.
I LOVE lemons but not as a body perfume!
This is like a lemon bottled and sold as an eau d'hadrien! Perhaps they should dial back on the lemon a bit, this may make a difference in the scent being a success.
I don't like it
Is not the kind of perfume I like to wear. Smell too much like lemon.
To me, not so good
I did not enjoy the scent of this. It smelled like lemon cleaning products. It was strong but not in a good way.
At first I thought I didn't like this perfume, but after I sprayed it on my skin I fell in love with it. I will be purchasing a large bottle. It is fresh and citrusy. A completely different scent. Love, love, love it.
Totally agree! i am loving it to.
It doesn't smell like Pledge, it's not that bad. But I think it would make a much better room spray than something to wear on the skin.
Not a big fan
Did not like it at all, smelled like a cleaning produce
Smells a lot like lemon pledge
It doesn't last and smells too citrusy
Mrs Mina Gruucio
Liked it very much
